Eman is a 42 year old woman. She is the mother of two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a guard at a local factory and he earns a low salary. It is not enough to cover the family's costs and to pay for the completion of the home's construction which began ten years ago.
Eman is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses of the construction as well as to improve its condition with things such as: painting, installing tiles, and installing a new ceiling for the house. Taking this loan will create for Eman and her family a better and more comfortable home condition.
